Pete Blair – President – Pastures Golf Club



In 1969 Tour Pro Max Faulkner opened Pastures golf course, a nine hole course located in South Derbyshire, little did he know the course would not be beaten in the 50 years following, with no round below par (1 over par on current format).

Despite this, last year England Golf assessed Pastures Golf Club with a WHS slope rating of 114 (+1 shot off scratch)!
